I've tried everything I can think of to no avail, so I'm asking here. Here's the problem: I'm making some blogs with affiliate datafeeds. Every time I put up a feed, it automatically generates thousands of clicks to my links. Tracking it down, it turns out that it clicks every link in every post. So with 2 links per post and a 5k item feed, that's 10k clicks that blast into the network in the timespan of about 2 hours. Since it's a CJ datafeed, this means that these clicks kill my EPC (and the EPC of any merchant not big enough to absorb this "activity" dies too). This gets merchants upset for no good reason and I don't want to attract negative attention. There's nothing fishy on the blogs...no "Counter Strike" or the like. But it sure looks like it when suddenly a new site gets 10k clicks in a night! Obviously I don't want to get falsely accused. So as you can guess, I want to make it so WordPress doesn't auto-click my links when I put new posts up or update 'em. I've tried setting it to not automatically pingback/trackback, but it does it anyway. Messing with the comment.php, which looks like it should have the relevant code, has done nothing either. So I'm hoping someone here knows how to make WordPress quit doing that! Thanks!
